Personal Notes:
My paternal grandmother, who was a great baker, gave me this recipe. She could prepare dozens of biscuits at a time without ever measuring any ingredients and always used her hands to mix (as she could tell by the feel of the dough whether or not it was right). This recipe came to me as only a list of ingredients. She figured I knew how to prepare cookies.
